The Annual Festival

Living around Georgian Bay we’re fortunate to have access to some amazing natural playgrounds to revel in. This event is about bringing together those who are passionate about getting outside and being active in nature; a chance to celebrate the amazing natural world and the things we do in it. All the while raising money for a great cause.

The Films

Take a walk on the wild side.

We screen inspiring short and feature length films about the outdoors and the passions we pursue in them. Films for those who play in the woods, rivers, lakes, snow and mountains. We hope you’ll join us for an entertaining night of community and storytelling.
